Daylighting has already been proven to increase a building’s energy efficiency and occupant well-being. Material choice matters. This course will explore the role of daylighting as part of sustainable project design and how to maximize the availability of natural light.
Substantial attention will be given to the role of polycarbonates in daylighting strategy, including product choices and applications. Case studies are also included and examine the use of polycarbonates in various daylighting settings, ranging from a five-year comparative study to an internationally renowned sports stadium, higher education, and a condo in Florida.
